Q2DM1: The Edge Revisted!
Email: **email removed**
This is an attempt to bring back The Edge for all you Q2 players in Q3.
There have been other releases, but none have really got it quite right, this version has been tuned for play with ProMode Mod.

*** Important ***
I take only credit for the conversion and visual/geometry changes: this map's design is the brain child of Tim Willits of id Software.
Alot of work has gone into repairing the orignal converted bsp, rescaling, rebuilding and then polishing it, do not dismiss this as another dodgy
Build Time: 80 - 100 hours (lots of rebuilding/repairing/retexture after global rescale)
Compile Time: approx 10 mins
FFA/Team gametypes have different item distributions to 1v1 gametype which was tuned with the help of top players in the Promode community.
If your finding it a bit dark, do adjust your gamma(not to much =) I normally use "1" but found 1.1 or 1.2 a little better. The lighting uses the skymaps sun light and I also used an ambient value of 25. Lightning was really difficult(mainly the inner circular area) to do properly and I'm finding myself using the ambient key alot more than I use to even though it can flatten out contrasting shadows, having a consistent low level light throughout the entire map helps with the realsim. Most players who are realy competitive will use vertex anyway though.
